Of her priorities, she has said, "It will be my priority to consider the concerns and desires raised by citizens throughout the Suwanee 20/20 Vision Planning process. A recurring theme throughout the planning process, and articulated in the final report recently adopted by Council, was the concern citizens have regarding the condition of the I-85 Gateway area.

"I would like to see the City establish specific short term and long term plans regarding the development and enhancement of that area."

Doug Ireland, elected in 2011, is the other council member to take office in 2012.

Suwanee is fortunate to have a citizen like Beth step up for this position. She will most certainly be an asset to our city government.
